And Sew On - show me your January blocks!

Hard to believe January is nearly over! That means you just have a few more days to make and share your blocks!

I have just loved seeing everyone's different versions of the January block "Measure Twice" for the And Sew On BoM.

Loved seeing the different fabric choices:

Loved seeing the little touches people have added to make the block their own:

Loving it all. Love love love. 

You can check out more blocks in the Quiet Play Flickr group and add yours if you haven't done so yet!

And more importantly, please do link your block up to the linky party so you have a chance to win one of these fabulous prizes!

Haven't made your block yet? No worries! There's still time. The pattern is free from my Craftsy shop til the 31st January. Better get in quick and download it! Happy paper piecing!

Go ahead, link up and show me your blocks!


  1. Oops! Hadn't realised I had forgotten to link-up, thanks for the reminder. Would hate to miss out on those prizes :)

  2. Pretty! What a cool idea to make the cutting board! It's fun to see the variety.

  3. Well done everyone they are looking good, can't wait to see what next month brings.

  4. Can't wait for the February block :)

  5. Love seeing everyone's blocks! I can't wait for next month!

  6. Very very nice!

  7. I love the many different fabrics and color choices being used. I realize I have only 2 days to get it done....thanks for the inspiration!

  8. Oh, I want to join, but collection is closed now. I forgot about time zones. Here is 31st, 4.30 pm. Could you join me? Next time earlier, i promised :)

  9. Bummer, I missed it. I thought I had today (January 31 here still) also . . . Oh well, next time! Great blocks everyone!

  10. I am in the same boat as verpa above. Missed linking up last night my time because of California time zone. I will still make Block 2 and try to not cut it so close to the deadline next month. I will also try to not cut it so close to my finger as you will understand if you read my post and go to see my block at

  11. I forgot about the time change too! Hope to be more prompt next month. I like how my block turned out and I'm looking forward to February's BOM! Thanks Kristy.

  12. Apologies for the time zone muck up for the linky party. I have emailed those of you who missed out about it.

    I have also made sure to allow an extra day or so on the February linky party! :)

    Sorry folks!!!

  13. I have joined this BOM but have absolutely no idea on how to join a linky party or even link up something. Can you help?


Thank you so much for taking the time to leave a comment. I read each and every word! I'll do my best to reply to them either via email or here on the blog, when time permits!
